The Beverley Hotel



The creative spirit of the original Queen West is what inspired the new boutique BeverleyHotel. The BeverlyHotel has been influenced by art, creativity and music.  The lounge or rooftop patio at the hotel is a great place to chat over drinks.

The BeverleyHotel has a lofty goal: “We hope to reconnect that part of Queen Street that’s been lost in recent years, with a gathering place that provokes conversation, welcomes strangers and makes room for conflicting ideals.”

The finer things in life collide with the spirit of Queen West.  Community sourced ingredients give a local flavour to a diverse menu by chef Eric Wood. Time spent handcrafting cocktails can be tasted in every sip.


And masterfully poured craft beers fuel lively debate over the merits of today’s curated playlist.

The raw yet refined space of the bar provides an ideal contrast to the intriguing elegance of the dining room – a contrast that suits the mix of guests and original denizens of the area perfectly.

It all adds up to a vibe that invites you to eat, drink and be merry, so

Rolling Rampage On The Hill

Thursday October 10, 2013 was a very special day! Indeed, hundreds of elementary students participated to the 8th Annual Rolling Rampage event on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. The aim of the event was first to showcase International Wheelchair Racing and to deliver the message that sports are accessible to all.

The sponsor of the event was The Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons, which is committed to advancing the immeasurable abundance of skill and capacity in Canada’s disability community.

Some of the world’s fastest wheelchair athletes have showcased their talent in a Men’s and Women’s 10K International Wheelchair Road Race. International Athletes coming from Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Japan, Korea and South Africa were present for that special event, such as Josh Cassidy, Diane Roy, Ernst Van Dyk and Amanda McGrory, to compete for $30,000 in prizes.

The Rolling Rampage On The Hill also welcomed Senators, Members of Parliament, and Ministers such as the Minister of State for Sport Bal Gosal. This event was an opportunity to show how sport can be inspiring and how strong is its healing power is for disabled persons.
